    Well I work in radio, but that call sign is Mike Two November Hotel.

    No, it’s Northern Bridge 3D Models.

    Wondering what to put on top of this tunnel and have killed 2 birds with one stone after deciding to put 3 sidings there and using it for extra storage!!

    A tunnel mouth at the other end would look good.

    Do you think that the single skin of brick work will hold up that railway...?? ;);)

    The layout is looking good Ron with the extra ground coverings. :thumbs:

    The railways normally clear hills and/or make cuttings. Your engineers have put the whole hillside back ! :avatar::avatar:

    Looking good Ron, keep up the great work and throw a little Southern on board... ;)

    Cheers, Gary.

    Really impressed with the additions to the layout Ron
    One of most creative additions is the extra storage above the tunnel really looks the part and is super useful what you lost from storage on the original layout before modifying has been gained back very creatively.
    Have enjoyed watching the changes occurs :thumbs::tophat::thumbs::tophat::thumbs::tophat:
